This Week in Modern Fabulousity - April 17, 2006

After your last minute tax crunch this past weekend, you deserve a break:

DANCE: Joyce Theatre - Stephen Petronio Company featuring Rufus Wainwright
The evocative Bessie-winning choreographer Stephen Petronio premieres his collaboration with pop troubador Rufus Wainwright BLOOM; Wainwright's original score includes special live guests the Young People's Chorus of New York City. The rest of the bill includes Bud Suite, also with music by Wainwright, and The Rite Part, based on Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring."

FOOD: Lower East Side - Little Giant
The perfect dining spot from to celebrate the warmer weather, this tiny bistro is a corner of forgotten New York that combines great food with laid-back, open-air atmosphere. ModFab had brunch with Cupcake Planet over the weekend, and we stumbled into Little Giant almost by accident. The grits and Italian-inspired BLT sandwich (open faced with roasted tomatoes on brioche) is to die for.

TELEVISION: Game Show Network - I've Got A Secret
Why are all the panelists on the new revival of the 50's quiz show I've Got A Secret all homosexual? Maybe because gays are secretive and devious. Maybe because we can read people and guess really well. Maybe because the producers hope that the ghosts of Charles Nelson Reilly, Paul Lynde, and Richard Dawson will visit their little enterprise and work some magic. (Either that, or it's a hail mary pass from a hopeless cause.)

CONCERTS: Bowery Ballroom - Scissor Sisters featuring Tiga
The good news: two nights of New York's finest party band (with Canada's finest mashup king in tow), as the Sisters test out new material for their upcoming sophomore CD. The bad news: both shows are sold out, with little hope of scoring Ebay tix. But all the filthy and gorgeous children should keep hope alive.

ART: Derek Eller Gallery - Ivan Witenstein
Perhaps the title of this exhibition says it all: Infidelicious, U2, peace and other queer shit, Bonding across lines of difference. The abortion of cool, Grey Broadway, It's a ghetto sound wave now! The conceptual work includes paintings, sculpture, and an epic poem. Go ahead, tell me you're not interested.
